The year was 1870, the owner was Charlie Lattimore, and the land was in upper Cleveland County in a place known as Delight, NC. Through five generations of family and farm changes, Beam Family Farms came into existence when Luke and Kathy Beam married and began their family’s beef journey in 1999. We started with 20 borrowed cows, a 200 year old farmhouse, and lots of prayer. It has turned into a proud family owned business. Our Beam Family's promise to you is to produce the highest quality grass grown beef and pastured pork and deliver remarkably lean cuts that are fresh, sustainable and healthy for your family. The animals on our farm are raised the way nature intended - in pastures for the duration of their lifetime. This means no hormone injections, no antibiotics, no fattened up grain fed beef.
Please take a few minutes to get to know us, our faith, and the wonderful products we are blessed to share with you. It is our hope you will become a part of the Beam Grass-fed Beef Family! Thank you for your interest in our farm. Don't be afraid to stop by and say hello - we would love to meet you!

Kathy and I met on a blind date in August of 1998. After nine months of courtship and enduring some rough times in our personal lives (Kathy’s father went to Heaven in October ’98 and my dad went to Heaven in April ’99), we realized we could not and did not want to live life apart. So we married on June 19th, 1999!
Three years later Keely was born! One and half years later Ella was born! We waited six more years before trying for number three and God has trusted us with Lucas. Children are a blessing from God, but this blessing brings the greater challenge. Teaching children to follow Christ, while caring for His creation - is an awesome challenge! We now farm together. Keely cares for the goats and chickens. Ella raises the pork. Lucas helps daddy with the cattle. Mommy keeps us together and is in charge of product testing (cooking family meals)!
God has truly blessed our family with His riches of grace and mercy.
